Description

Why Are You OK is Band of Horses' fifth studio album, a record produced by Jason Lytle, executive produced by Rick Rubin and mixed by Dave Fridmann.

In the past, Band of Horses founder and leader Ben Bridwell would literally run away from home to write: holing up in a secluded cabin or other such remote location, emerging months later with new songs for his band to flesh out and fully animate. This time — whether by happenstance or conscious need for a drastic change — Ben stayed home to write. In the estrogen-charged atmosphere of a home shared with his wife and four — yes, four – daughters he allowed his everyday experiences to inform his process. Between dropping off and picking up the girls, changing diapers, and playing dress up, Bridwell spent every precious free minute — often the wee hours on the morning into daybreak – in his garage writing.

While Bridwell and his bandmates – Tyler Ramsey, Ryan Monroe, Creighton Barrett and Bill Reynolds—convened in South Carolina alongside producer Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Bridwell struggled to bring the new material into focus. One day, at a particularly crucial part of the recording process Ben's phone rang. It was Rick Rubin — who’d randomly heard a Band of Horses song on the radio during a drive, and had been moved to pull over and call. Without going into details, Bridwell can’t stress the value of this phone call enough. It was exactly the final push that his songs needed on their journey from conception to being sent out into the world.

The result is Band of Horses' fifth studio album, Why Are You OK, a record informed by experience and at the same time retaining the vulnerability that birthed their greatest songs. Creating capsule worlds populated by the strange but true cast of characters from Bridwell's hometown Charleston, SC, Why Are You OK's songs combined universal sentiments with Bridwell’s patented knack for storytelling — all wrapped in the lush melodic textures that have long been the bedrock of Band of Horses’ signature sound.
